Where is the "windows" menu? [message #519484] Mon, 08 March 2010 23:45 Go to next message

I would like to add a "windows" menu to my RCP including its usual children
(New Window..., New Editor..., Open Perspective..., Show View..., etc.).

Where is that stuff hiding? In an older RCP tutorial they referenced the
plugin org.eclipse.ui.perspectives, but that plugin apparently doesn't even
exist any more in Galileo (at least I couldn't locate it anywhere in the
entire eclipse subtree). Which plugin do I need to include to provide that?

Instead - for some odd reason - my RCP app has a Search menu. Any idea where
that stems from? I don't need that in my app and I am not aware of
referencing it anywhere. So why does this show up? How can I find out, why
that shows up?

Michael

Have a look at
org.eclipse.ui.internal.ide.WorkbenchActionBuilder.createWin dowMenu in
org.eclipse.ui.ide. That's how the current Window menu is created,
using ActionFactory and ContributionItemFactory.
